Get a low pro black toolbox, black headlights, get rid of the side steps, paint your wheels black, and get some 32" All Terrains. Oh and an RF sticker for that rear driverside window.

purple and yellow polka dots, with some streemers from the mirrors and maybe a big eagle on the hood snatching a salmon from a river. forgot and some white walls..... then your laughing!!

or, you could just do the standard 3" bl, 4" lift and some 35's. blackout your lights or get some cheesy euro looking imitation lights and stick a ohc in it with a stereo. :P

but i would go with the first idea and try to be an individual.

A meatier tire on those rims would look GREAT. Like others are saying, level it and get some 32's and enjoy it.

took my running boards off. looks cleaner without them and helps with ground clearance on a truck that is already alittle too low.

it also looks like our trucks are similar. put your specs in your sig so we have more info about it. i'm just doing the prekey/shackles with some 31s in the near future.

i disagree with the re-gear, ESP if it's an automatic... i hate my 4.10's i'm doing 3000 rpm down the hiway, with 31's... you don't need 4.10's i barely ever use 4x4 low even, and the only time i do, isn't because the truck doesn't have the torque to turn em, it's because i don't want to roast my clutch... a stock height truck, the thickest mud your going to get into, the motor will turn the tires, in 1st gear, if the mud is right up to the bottom of the truck, and if it's deeper than that, it is going to be the body that isn't letting you move any more, not your tires not turning...

ya dig?

i would only really go with 4.10's if you are looking at 33's-35's or bigger

theres no reason you should be running 3k rpm with 31's in 5th gear. thats wayyy high. you should be more in the 2400-2500 rpm range. with 4.10s and 32's i was running 2400 at 70 in 5th and with 33's its like 2300-2350. are you sure you are in 5 and not 4th when taking this reading?

with 4.10's 31's and a .79 OD you should be 2457 rpm and in 4th you should be 3111 rpm

*edit* and i stated 285/75s which will be 32.8 or 305/70s which will be 32.8 as well
